About us

In 2004 we took our first holiday in France and on the way back to the ferry port we had a little time to spare and stumbled upon Mont St. Michel. During those few hours we were totally captivated, not only of the Baie itself but also by one particular area - The Polders.

A beautiful and peaceful section of the countryside – totally unspoilt and typical of Northern France with friendly, local people – it truly has an ambience of its own and is the perfect setting for Sunset Cottage.

Sunset Cottage – our self catering holiday cottage
Sunset Cottage, was in need of major renovation and as retirement was beckoning for both of us we decided we needed a project and so we bought the house. Along with Cassie, our Springer spaniel, it was the start of our journey and an adventure in France – and certainly one we have not regretted.

Now we are experiencing retirement and are thoroughly enjoying it! Prior to this Ian served in The Greater Manchester Police Force and Pat was employed as a Research Scientist. Both totally different to running a holiday gite but they do have one very important thing in common – they all involve dealing with people and the general public on a daily basis – part of the business we really enjoy. Meeting people and making their stay enjoyable and memorable is extremely rewarding.

We strongly feel that accommodation on holiday should be at least as good, or as near as possible to, the standard you would have at home and at Sunset Cottage we place great emphasis on this.

The house is newly renovated and all fixtures are new – shiny, clean, bathrooms and kitchens, comfortable furniture to lounge on and watch the English satellite/French T.V. and equally comfortable garden furniture to continue your relaxation outside in the delightful, south-west facing garden. Place your glass in hand and admire the sunset… and later the beautiful starlit sky.

We feel Sunset Cottage is in a perfect location for your holiday and, like us, you will feel the need to return! Our aim is to make your holiday pleasantly memorable. If you have any questions about the property, or the local area please don’t hesitate to get in touch via our contact us form.

Best wishes,
Ian & Pat
